Curiosities show at Gallery Nucleus

Great new show at Gallery Nucleus:

Talented couple Mike Yamada and Victoria Ying have been collaborating on animation-inspired illustrations for some time. Most recently, the duo set out on a book project that successfully funded more than ten times their original goal. "Curiosities: An Illustrated History of Ancestral Oddity" is the tale of a brother and sister who inherit an old, mysterious mansion and all of the odd relics that are housed inside within. In celebration of the book's release, the couple has teamed up with Nucleus to present a very curious exhibition, indeed! Over 40 talented artists have imagined themselves exploring the oddities and creatures that one may discover in an ancient, spooky mansion.
Here's the book cover:
